Man charged in girl's death remanded in custody
By Timothy APPLEBY, Page A12
A 20-year-old Cornwall man charged with the first-degree murder of a five-year-old girl appeared briefly in court yesterday and was remanded in custody in Ottawa pending a further court appearance next Wednesday.
Shane HALEY was arrested without incident at his Cornwall home a few hours after Alissa MARTIN- TRAVERS was found slain early Thursday in the small, beige downtown Cumberland Street house she shared with her mother and baby sister. Mr. HALEY was "a remote acquaintance" of Alissa's mother, Stephanie MARTIN, Cornwall Police Chief Dan PARKINSON said.
An autopsy was under way yesterday at the Centre of Forensic Sciences in Toronto.
Police have said only that there were "obvious signs of trauma" to her body, and while no motive has been disclosed, she is not believed to have been sexually assaulted.
Several items were seized when Mr. HALEY was arrested.
Ms. MARTIN is not a suspect in her daughter's death and no other suspects are being sought, Chief PARKINSON said.
It was the first homicide in Cornwall since 2005, when there were three, and it has left the city of 46,000 in a state of shock and disbelief, police spokesman Blake PAQUIN said yesterday.
"It's very traumatizing for the family, for the community and for the police."
Outside the MARTIN- TRAVERS home, still sealed off yesterday with yellow crime-scene tape, a stream of sympathizers continued to leave teddy bears, flowers and brief messages.
Police were summoned to the home Thursday at about 1: 30 a.m., when Ms. MARTIN called 911. Mr. HALEY was arrested and charged in midafternoon on the same day.
"They knew each other in a casual relationship," Mr. PAQUIN said of the bereaved mother and the accused, whom he described as "a person living in the neighbourhood."

PARKINSON o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2008-05-30 published
ELLIS, Victor Edward, P. Eng.
Passed away peacefully with his children by his side, on Monday, May 26, 2008 at the age of 91. He will be lovingly missed by Joan, his life long love of 60 years, and children Paul (Chum), Mary-Liz (Ian) and Jack (Donna,) sweet Grampa to Jack CLARK, and loved by Jennifer, Jonathan (Lindsay) BENTLEY. Born in Calgary, he grew up during the depression in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. At the age of 14 he purchased a Model T Ford and had spent two months overhauling the car until a truant officer found him. After graduating from his beloved Queens University in Engineering, he served Canada as an officer in the Army for five years during World War 2. While helping the family business one summer at the Nakina Hotel, he met Joan Avril PARKINSON of Wales, England who became his partner for life after a courtship of one month. Victor applied his Engineering skills throughout his distinguished career, including 25 years as the Branch Manager of Sheldons Engineering in Toronto and later as a consultant to the air handling industry. Amherst Island was one of his passions where there was never enough time spent outdoors with family and Friends. Always a true gentleman until the end, outdoor sportsman, golfer, curler and avid reader of history. We will miss his cocktail hour ritual, his laughter and his daily question of "Joan is the tea made?" As Joan is currently hospitalized there will be a private cremation on Friday, May 30th with a Memorial service to follow in due time at Humphrey Funeral Home. Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Alzheimers Society will honour Dad's passing and be gratefully appreciated by the family.
